And how does that apply to me if I didn't directly hear the Badei Hashulchan say it with my own two ears?

It means go ask your rav how to regard videos and other shemuos that come out of bais maran. whether they have the strength of torah Misinai or are something less than that.

And what if you see him on the video repeating his grandson?
And if he is?

Clips like that shouldn't be trusted. We have no idea what was said afterwards, before, in what context it was said etc.

Why?
Because the grandson isn't a שר התורה

In Lakewood they ask a Lubavitcher Rov and do the opposite :P

Where have I heard this sentiment before

But the real answer is not to trust a guy on an internet forum. We have an Eibishter, we have a Torah, and we have halacha. Halacha instructs us to follow the advice of doctors. So follow halacha and ask your doctor. I'm confident in saying "get vaccinated" as a blanket statement because the medical concensus is to do so. If your specific case differs, you should of course follow the guidance and instruction you receive.

Respectfully, even if this was true (and I have no reason to doubt your statement of what is accepted in Lakewood) I don't think its productive to say that. We need to publicize positive Torah thoughts on the subject without attacking those who reject them.
